** Michael Fleischer speculated that if Krypton had not been destroyed, Kal-El would have been more like Clark Kent. Like his dad, he'd have a brilliant mind and do extraordinary things, but might be a bit shy and diffident, unsure if he could live up to Jor-El's reputation.

* In ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'', Amber/Amazi-Girl is practically portrayed as on the edge of a full-blown dissociative identity disorder.

* ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' is essentially a role assumed by Duck, predating the SecretIdentity and granted by [[RealityWarper Drosselmeyer]]. While the two are clearly the same person, their behavior is markedly different, and not just because Duck is the [[{{Dojikko}} worst]] dancer in the series while Tutu is probably the best.

*** This is also the path that Film/TheDarkKnightSaga took from the start. The playboy idiot Bruce Wayne "persona", such as it is, was a kind of on the spot bullshit maneuver Bruce used to deflect suspicion. Judging from his [[WalkingTheEarth immediately previous living conditions]], Bruce never has been that sort of man. In turn, Alfred's role in the films is to constantly remind Batman that ''he IS Bruce Wayne too'' and that he shouldn't cast that away as eagerly as he seems to be doing.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOBatmanMovie'' takes the idea of Batman being the real person and Bruce Wayne as the mask to its logical conclusion and deconstructs it. Batman never stops being Batman; even at home by himself, he always wears the mask and cape and talks in the same tone of voice. He has to be forced to be Bruce for public events, but doesn't act significantly different and doesn't like it. But since Batman exists to fight crime, there's nothing for him when there's no crime to fight. No personal life, no friends or family and he can't even leave the house for his meager hobbies. The Justice League doesn't even bother to invite him to their anniversary parties. A key part of the movie is basically Batman learning to get a life.

** One [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Age]] (i.e. after UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, but before the [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Crisis]]) story by AlanMoore featured Superman getting infected by a Kryptonian disease. The disease causes hallucinations comprised of two figures, similar to a GoodAngelBadAngel, one of whom thought he should accept it because death comes to us all, while the other one insisted he had a duty to fight it off. The defeatist appeared as an empty suit with glasses hovering above it, and the fighter as an empty Superman costume. Both referred to him as "Kal" and to each other as "Clark" and "Superman". At the end he wakes up, insisting he invented both of them, and [[TakeAThirdOption neither are real]].

** Music/DavidBowie has stated in interviews that he's terrified of the possibility of completely becoming [[Music/TheRiseAndFallOfZiggyStardustAndTheSpidersFromMars Ziggy Stardust]]. He stopped adopting such specific stage personas in 1977, after -- with the "help" of his cocaine addiction at the time -- the heartless Thin White Duke of ''Music/StationToStation'' came close to consuming him.

* [[AtopTheFourthWall Lewis Lovhaug]] presents this as an interpretation of the ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' episode "[[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind Fighting Spirit.]]" Dr. Thomas Oliver has been a Power Ranger for a total of five years, with six different power sets and [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers on]] [[Series/PowerRangersZeo four]] [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo different]] [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder teams]], and, especially given that his tenure as a Power Ranger ''began'' as a BrainwashedAndCrazy SuperpoweredEvilSide SixthRanger, might have a hard time figuring out ''who he is'' outside of the context of being a Power Ranger.

* At times, storylines will cross the line into acknowledging kayfabe and refer to wrestlers losing themselves in their characters. During The Undertaker's Ministry of Darkness phase, WWF did interviews with the McMahons where they refer to him as Mark and worry about what he's become.
* Likewise, they did a series of interviews with Dustin Runnels (who wrestled as Golddust) and his then wife Terri, who went by Marlena in WWF. This led to him leaving her during one interview and becoming the even mor bizarre Artist Formerly Known as Golddust.
